I know you're wondering why I'm starting in so late. I tried to switch last year using Slackware on my vintage 2003 box, but even my best Linux-hacker friends had trouble figuring out how to get ATi's Radeon 9500 driver package to work; thus my concern about compatibility issues. I need parts that will go with Linux like butter on bread. Warm butter, not cold, mind you!
So what's the best side of the Intel/AMD, nVidia/ATi equations for a Linux box, or are they suddenly equal in '07? Do I need to worry about motherboard chipsets at all? What vendors are particularly bad and good as far as Linux support goes?
